Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Dear Ubuntu, for the last couple years life has been good. Every time I've shown you to a friend or family member, they've compared you to what they're familiar with--Windows XP or Vista, mostly--and by comparison you've looked brilliant. Yeah, your ugly brown color scheme was a bit off-putting at first, but once people saw how secure, simple, and reliable you were, the response was almost universally positive.

That is just some seriously poor linking to such a story. Do you have to link such things where the user thinks X is better than Y?

It's just a rant comparing Ubuntu with Windows 7. I'm pretty sure that if Ubuntu hit the OEM market properly, it would be good enough.

It reads to be like some ex-ubuntu users that just doesn't like the changes and thinks Windows 7 is better. I rather OSnews post some real news really because this just isn't.

Woah, what goggles were you wearing when you read the article?

It’s in the X vs. Y category.

It's just a rant comparing Ubuntu with Windows 7


No, no it’s not. It’s about a Linux user who feels that priorities within Ubuntu are off course and the competition represents a threat that wasn’t there before when it was relatively easy to be better than a 9 year old OS.

I rather OSnews post some real news


It’s Sunday. Got some real news? I’d like to hear it, we haven’t had many submissions.

yes friend you are right but seriously, windows 7 more secure than linux?

please don't say bullshit http://www.secureworks.com/research/threats/zeus/ ( watch the paragraph Windows 7/Vista Support $2000 )

UAC is a very superficial imitation of the sudoing mechanism

yes windows 7 is better than vista, but, hey, vista is plain simple shit

it is so easy to be better than vista

so what is the point of the article? ubuntu and/or linux is becoming uglier? less secure? I don't see this trend happening
